Abstract
Non-pathological or normal ageing is accompanied by brain alterations that are the result of natural changes occurring with age and our ability to compensate for them. Compared to younger adults, older adults have reduced vision, more difficulties in detecting relevant information they are not intending to and require more time to process sensorial information. Little is known on how these changes affect behaviour in a natural environment. Relying on a translational approach at the frontiers between neurobiology, psychophysics, neuropsychology and epidemiology, we were able to: explore the needs for innovative instrumentations to detect cerebral decline in clinical settings; develop and validate a new computed neuropsychological instrument designed to measure cerebral decline in healthy older adults; explore the link between processing speed and on-road driving performance; and investigate the effects of being able to anticipate on visual processing speed.
